Anybody happen to have a Mossberg 380 or 377 .22 rifle ? I picked one up years ago that had a broken firing pin. I replaced the pin , cleaned it and can't get it to strike the primer. Rounds extract manually without issue. I also tried replacing the hammer as in the limited info I found online the "newer" style firing pin required a new style hammer. Still no luck. I think either the pin is a hair out of spec and isn't reaching the primer, or something is preventing it from going all the way into battery. Any thoughts?

Joined a local, private range back in January.  Bought a Ruger Mark IV (.22) to learn with.  Great looking gun, and absolutely love the one-button take down and how easy it is to clean.  Mostly dialed out my heeling and too much trigger finger.  A few weeks ago, picked up a Sig Sauer P226 Legion (9mm).  Not the biggest fan of the DA trigger, but WOW the reset and ease of the SA is clean, crisp and incredibly short. I was between the Mark 25 and the Legion, and the Legion just felt ever-so-slightly more comfortable in my hands.

Was able to get the Mossberg up and running. Put the original hammer back in and tried the new firing pin I sourced from a different supplier. Looks like the first replacement pin may have been off just enough to not contact the primers. Had a blast at the range with my son. Nice sunny day, private range with no one else there.
